"We are meeting with PD and Fire Rescue on Thursday... Grateful for this meeting, not only for my son, but for the doors it will open for others who walk in our shoes.  Thank you."

"I know you understand the fears we have... your gift of writing and your knowledge of autism are such a blessing..."

Caren (Missouri)

"AMAZING.  Officer Kevin was so patient and kind.  He stayed for 40 minutes!  Offered to stop by a few more times and continue to build a rapport.  It was a really great experience;  one we would not have had if it weren't for you.  I am truly grateful to you for this experience and sharing your insight."

Robyn (New Jersey)

"Thank you so much for your introduction!  I am happy to email... for follow-up and an introduction with the Sheriff..."
